with harry reid and begin to address our problems. >> the president will be in newport news today to discuss the local economy, particularly military spending. the president met at the white house. they are critical about how the president is handling the situation. >> now is a time for him to show leadership, proposed $85 billion, propose the are you ductions in a more balanced way. every government has to do it. >> i could not be more frustrated. how many more times are the governors going to have to pick up the mess of washington, d.c. my kids could go find $83 billion out of a $4 trillion budget. this is not rocket science. this is an inability to want to get to work. >> we could provide an alternative. we have shown you can do it. we have done it state by state. it's time to do it at the capital to make it happen. >> joe biden addressed the association about the politics. >> people are tired are being tired. then they are ready to get up and move. you know that. it's happening in your states. you probably feel in your fingertips more than most of us do here in washington. i think they a
conversation with harry reid, senator reid, the majority leader the week before. our members want us to have cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balance the budget over the next ten years. that's what we want and that's a tall order. it's going to mean real work on our entitlement programs, real work on other spending items in the budget. >> pelley: and to be clear no revenue increases. >> we're not -- the president got his tax hikes in january. the federal government will have more revenue this year than any year in our history. it's time to tackle spending. period. >> pelley: he's referring, of course, to last month's increase in top tax rates and the increase in the payroll tax. the automatic spending cuts that start on friday come to $85 billion this year and mr. obama had this to say in an appearance today in virginia at the newport news shipyard. >> when you're cutting $85 billion in seven months, there's no smart way to do that. you don't want to have to choose between, let's see, do i close funding for the disabled kid or the poor kid? do i close this navy shipyard or some othe
with harry reid. >> should the president turn his bus around? we report. you decide. >>steve: turn the bus around or turn the beat around? >>brian: one was al roker's book and one was the 1970's hit. >>steve: the president tells the press out with you's. >> look forward to our partnering. with that, what i want to do is clear out the press so we can take some questions. all right? >>brian: fantastic. goodbye, ed henry. there is one way to hear what he has to say. a little bit later you're going to ask some questions and i'll leave. the picture you didn't see from the first lady's oscar appearance. who decided she needed to cover up and get some sleeves and a higher neckline? "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: welcome board to the tv barn, everybody. what does that mean? [mooing] >>brian: steve was recruited off the future farmers of america's rosters. >>steve: i was back in the day. >>gretchen: are you from kansas? >>steve: yes, i'm from kansas. >>alisyn: i didn't know you are on some sort of farmer's bulletin board. >>brian: then you married kathy, a city girl and brought her to the cou
was serious, he'd sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. >> you know, willie, it strikes me not only the white house but liberals for a decade now have said if republicans were serious about the deficit, they would cut defense spending and they would come forward with tax increases. well, it looks like, as mike was talking about yesterday in this new york article, republicans are going to come forward and let these defense cuts go through. so republicans will, over the past three months compromise in defense spending and compromise in tax increases. so i think it's fair at this point to say, mr. president, show us your hand, because this is what we've been hearing for a decade. taxes have gone up and now we're going to cut pretty significantly from the pentagon's budget. your move, mr. president. >> he wants revenues to go up again and john boehner's response is, we just did that. >> that's the thing. we always heard, you guys raise taxes, cut defense spending and then we will come back with a compromise on spending cuts. but, no, we raise taxes, we come forward with pent
to harry reid. bill: that is cab fare, by the way. steve hayes, senior writer, "weekly standard." fox news contributor. good morning to you. >> good morning bill. >> president is on the road. no meetings to talk about this between senate leaders and house leaders. no meetings with the administration. friday there is no session on the schedule for congress. >> right. what's different about this one is that in the past, the fiscal cliff, these other things you at least staff to staff contact and negotiations and ongoing discussions, sort of largely out of public view. that even is not happening in this scenario. i think we're likely to see the sequester come march first and see how it plays out the next month. bill: if it comes, this deadline is little different from what we've seen in the past, steve. >> right. bill: this is gradual. make it works its way into the system a little bit at a time during the month of march. for sure during april. >> right. bill: it seems to have a different feel. there is not the urgency there. >> it does. this is where the white house is having, creating some
shortly thereafter. here is harry reid. >> there's a fair and constructive nomination process politically mow vated sent a terrible signal to our allies around the world. >> joining me right now is john bar ross sew. i want to remind everybody that you sent a letter to the president last week asking him to drop hagel's name from consideration and on that same day we had richard shelby saying that he will support hagel and he's probably as good as we are going to get. why are you still against chuck hagel moving forward and being confirmed? >> well, thank you, thomas, for having me. i think he's the wrong person to lead the department of defense. it's the largest employer in our country, a significant management skills are needed. i also believe that he has been wrong. he has a long history that is to me unsettling in terms of positions on iran, iraq, israel, and nuclear weapons. and i think thomas, anybody that watched the confirmation hearings know that he appeared very wobbly. i don't think we have that with chuck hagel. >> is this more about getting a former republican in charge of def
was created in 1947. four days ago hagel's nomination seemed indoubt with the filibuster from negative. harry reid blamed the delay with republicans playing politics with national defense. >> it's time to set aside this partisanship. the pentagon needs a seasoned leader to implement cuts. u.n. the 12 days since the filibuster not one single thing has changed. not one. yet republicans had to have their filibuster for make their pointless partisan point. they are children. the president's pick for treasury secretary will have a he'dier time. approved the nomination of jacob lew. the vote after a three-hour confirmation hearing with he was pressed just a little bit about working sat citigroup after the financial collapse. unlike the manufactured crisis of bengahzi neither republicans nor democrats have made a national issue about the shaky investments, bailouts that lew has seen. we're more squinting after the smallest sign of progress on the sequester. the the white house and the congress have until wednesday night to avert the cross the board cuts. to highlight those cuts president obama went
was serious, he would sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. the house has acted twice. we should not have to act the third time before the senate begins to do their work. guest: speaker boehner was the chairman of the education committee when i sat on there when i first came to the congress. he is usually a very reasonable person. i think some of that was a little bit of politics. i do not seek the president using our armed men and women as props. certainly, i think there is some gamesmanship going on by both sides the bottom line is -- and both sides could the bottom line is, speaker boehner, there are many people that want to be at the table with you and want to start to make smart cuts -- both sides. the bottom line is, speaker boehner, there are many people that want to be at the table with you and want to start making smart cuts. if we need to save defense, if we cannot cut deeply to defense, then sit down with us and decide how much from defense is really fat and waste right now, and let's figure out how we make up the rest of that money. that is called a new rev
of the house of representatives, and for him to say the president and harry reid ought to get together and come up with a solution. to me he is insulting himself. >> stephanie: yeah. >> but the other thing is that the republican conference and the house of representatives enacted the sequester. >> stephanie: right. >> 170-something members it would not have passed without him -- >> stephanie: but congressman he is said it's the president's sequester hashtag. >> i know, and i didn't know the president has a vote in the congress. >> stephanie: yeah. there are a lot of people talk about all of the ways the sequester will impact people's lives, and charlie pierce was on, and he wrote a great piece about this is all local news has time to cover. so democrats have already won the pr, you know battle here so how do you see this playing out by friday? >> well, i still think we're going to get some kind of delay in the sequester. i think ultimately -- the rational thing will ultimately happen at the very last minute after every other absurd solution is abandoned. >> steph
sit down with harry reid tonight and work with senate democrats who have the majority in the senate to move a bill. >> at some point, we've got to do some governing. >> there are are two potential sort of last-minute solutions to the sequester that neither sides want to unite around. the final white house offer to boehner on the grand bargain included nearly $1 trillion in spending cuts over ten years. could it be as a good-will gesture the white house offers one year of those cuts, which come out to $90 billion as a replacement to the sequester this year? then there's the plan senate republicans could offer this week, they haven't decided if they're going to this week that gives the white house flexibility on how to cut spending, but even republicans aren't united on that one. >> here's what i don't understand. we're the party of physical conservati conservatism. have we put a plan together to cut $85 billion between march and october? no. we will criticize everything he does. say, mr. president, it is now up to you to find this $85 billion in savings and we'll say to make it easie
the sound bite from majority leader harry reid but he said he grew up in a town filled with brothels. you know he's from nevada near las vegas area and so he's used to quote salty language and so this didn't offend him but he said, wolf, that the speaker should know who is sitting on their posterior. if this is the language they are using before the cuts go into effect this may be a more exciting story. >> how effective has the president been in delivering this hard hitting message basically totally blaming the republicans for refusing to compromise? >> well, the goal here is to make this really feel, make americans realize how much this will hit home and how much the budget cuts will impact their own pocketbook. the latest polling shows that's had mixed results. right now 60, 6-0 percent of americans believe these forced spending cuts will hurt the overall economy. only 30% think it will have a major impact on their own personal finances. and politicians, insiders, both democrats and republicans tell me they think more americans have to really feel it in the pocketbook before democrats a
. >> harry reid hasn't passed a budget in almost four years. >> can i just make a pitch for blaming the american people? >> sure, go ahead. >> just to wrap up, i mean, the reason that we have these divisions in washington in part is because the american people really, really, really want spending cuts right up until they see what the spending cuts actually are. and so it's not just that our politicians are letting us down, they're responsive to public opinion and public opinion likes fiscal discipline more in theory than in practice. >> we'll button up this segment by -- >> maimi inblaming americans. >> no, we want to foe on to twitter and facebook. who do you believe when it comes to forced spending cuts? jackie says the bunl the nedget be cut and the cuts are a pittance. this from lee, it's time for republicans to admit they are obstructing. hoping to p hoping to put the blame on the president, but it's not working. next talk back question, is it wrong to end telecommuting? ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] what's the point of an epa estimated 42 miles per gallon if the miles aren't
